Who Needs a Christmas Tree by Agaave Who Needs a Christmas Tree by Agaave
Who needs a Christmas tree when you can decorate a dragon? :giggle:

Here is my Secret Santa picture via %TheDragonChallenge for lovely `Scellanis
I tried to analyze `Scellanis' gallery to find out what she likes and here is my recipe: chubby dragon, stripes and lots of decorations.
If my analysis went totally wrong I hope you still like the picture I drew. ^^

Tools: Markers and colored pencils for dragon; pastels, watercolors and acrylics for background. Few white gel pen details here and there.

Happy Christmas!  I just wanted to let you know that I've featured your work in a post called Christmas Dragons by Various Artists on my dragon artwork blog (with proper attribution and links back, of course).  I love this piece!  You can find me at Writing Dragons, and this feature here.  Keep up the good work!

That's why you shouldn't eat things that are not meant to be eaten kids.

Hahaa, eipä mitään, mullakin on inboxissa ikivanhoja töitä jemmassa odottamassa kommentteja... ;P

Kiitos kaunis! :heart:
Nyt on jostain kumman syystä hevoset vallanneet  mun gallerian ja loharit jääneet vähemmälle huomiolle, joten tämä Secret Santa oli hyvä tilaisuus verestää loharinpiirtotaitoja.
(Vähän harmi, että itse on koskaan saanut omaa salapukkikuvaani, mutta olipahan ainakin hauska piirtää tämä.)

This = win.

One thing would make it better, put a star or and angle on one horn, and maybe the other on the other horn.

This is so so stinkin' cute!  I absolutely love how you draw dragons, and this one is so adorable with all of his holiday decor/accents.  :heart:  You have an amazing ability to capture all kinds of different textures in your traditional media Teach me, oh master

Aww, thank you kindly! :glomp:

I am glad to hear that you like the textures I add; I am such texture junkie myself! My favorite way to do them (and also the easiest way I guess) is just sprinkle watercolor or acrylic paint all over the painting with toothbrush. I usually do this last because I think it is only nice looking if few sprinkles catch the character also. Binds it better on the background, I guess. You can also make lots of nice patterns with watercolors: adding salt on paint, dropping darker color or clean water on paint (depending the effect you want) or dabbing color with papertowel or other tool. There are endless of possibilities and I am always thrilled if I find new techniques. :dummy:

I love all those texture ideas... and even love more seeing how you utilize each of those. 

Here's to hoping the New Year brings you lots more time for drawing, creating and discovering new ideas. 

Happy New Year 2011

Same to you! May there be extra hours in our days dedicated only to drawing and nothing else. :tighthug:
Must just remember to make the wish when year changes... in this situation time zones are handy: around 31st and 1st year is changing somewhere all the time. :giggle:

ReQuay Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013
LOL, yes, must remember to make that wish... as you said all day on the 31st, since the New Year will be changing somewhere in the world all day that day!  :giggle:

:iconagaave:
Agaave Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2014
Omg, I actually forgot to make the wish! I hope you had better memory... :omg:
But no worries, I might have to take on responsibility in my own hands now and make giving more time for art as a new year resolution.

ReQuay Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
LOL, don't feel bad, I forgot too.  ;)

We'll just pretend that our pre-thinking it counts as a midnight wish.  :fingerscrossed: 

And like you said, if nothing else, we'll just have to take it on ourselves to make art a priority.  :D  That's a New Years Resolution I look forward too.
